NO j82 MZO JCAN THE FURTHER INFLATION OF THE CANNON BOOM 4n Illinois Colleague Demonstration by He Was Keinimleil ThaJ; Yesterday Was the Thirty Fourth Anniversary of Uncle Joe's 31 aid on speech In the House. Washington, Feb. IS. Speaker Can non's presidential boom received a marked impetus in the house today when Mr. Boutell, his colleague from Illinois, brought the subject to the fore as the climax of a half hour's speech. His remarks were based on the fact that today was the thirty fourth anniversary of Mr. Cannon's first speech in the house. Mr. Boutell sjxike with enthusiasm and when he closed with the remark that within the next two months "the plain people of the country would join the voters of Mr. Cannon's district in conferring upon him the nation's final honor," the speaker was given a great demons'tra lion. Keen disappointment was felt on all sides when the speaker made no reply. He stepp.-j from the rostrum amid the cneering and retired to the room while the house considered the tension bills. Most of the day was taken up by a discussion of the bill to provide for the taking of the next census. Its consideration had not been concluded when the hot'sp adjourned. RAILROAD GRANTS. A Senate Resolution o Enforce the Terrrs on Which They Were Given 1 Washington. Feb. IS. The fact that .'he department of justice has made all preparations to begin suit to enforce the terms of the government land grants in the state of Oregon was brought out in itJie senate today when Senator Fulton of the committee of the judiciary, reported a , resolution au thorizing the department to bring such suits and asked for its immediate adoption. ''.Mr. Hepburn asserted that hundreds of millions would be found involved if the proceedings were mle general. The resolutions were general I v dis cussed by senators, the only objection urged against it being based on the idea that the attorney general is now empowered by law to do all that was sought by the resolution during the discussion. Mr. Fulton announced that the department was to proceed anil merely wanted the authority of con gress to meet any possible question that may be raised against the legality of the proceedings. Mr. Fulton said that there was no question that the railroads had violated the terms of the grants as the violation had been ad mitted before a subcommittee of the committee on judiciary. Mr. Tillman explained that he had introduced the original resolution in view of what he learned while on a isit to the Pacific coast. He was satisfied that the railroads are with holding lands from settlement worth millions. The propriety of passing such a res olution was questioned bv Mr. Forak er. Air. Fulton did not believe the res olution was necessary but the attor ney general wanted it, and he thought he should have it.

The most violent storm tiiat has visited Chicago in many years commenced at 7 o'clock this morning and tonight is raging with increasing violence. There is no prospect of its lessening before morn ing. l!y 4 o'clock this afternoon sovc n inches of snow had fallen and is still coining down heavily. The. wind at frequent intervals blew at a- velocity of fifty miles an hour and hurled the snow through streets in such blinding clouds that it was impossible to see a greater distance than half a square. A great number of accidents of a minor character were caused by collisions between wagons and street cars. At five o'clock when the home going crowd was the ithickest the wind was blowing so heavily and the snow was falling in such blinding sheets that it was positively dangerous to attempt to cross Michigan avenue at its intersection with either Jackson boulevard or Van Buren street. These crossings are used by thousands of people cveri' night to reach their homes in the southern part of the city, suburbs by means of the Illinois Cen tral railroad. It was found necessary to station a large number of city and park police at these corners to assist women and often it was more than one officer could do to pilot a woman across with out assistance. It was out of the ques tion for her to cross the street by her self. The street car lines and elevated roads fared well throughout the day, but the heavy increase of snow- that came lat,e in the afternoon made des perate work for them. Every available man and all the snow plows were con stantly at work keeping the tracks clear. In the suburbs the trolley lines were operated with great difficult v be cause of the constantly increasing drifts. 6REA1 ACHIEVEMENT SAYS PENNYBACKER Speaking of the Construction of the Pennsylvania Capitol Building. j Harrisburg, Pa. Feb. IS. Governor Pennypacker "as an Important wit ness in the state capitol conspiracy trial today. Mr. Pennypacker. ly vir tue of his office of governor, was president of the board on ground's and buildings during the equipment of the capitol. His colleagues on the board were Former Auditor General Snyder and Former State Treasurer Matties. Its active office- was Former Superin tendent Shumaker. The former gov ernor was ca!.ed as witness for these three former state officers. Mr. Pennypacker said that extraor dinary precautions had been taken to safeguard the commonwealth in the payment of bills, by requiring the ar chitect and, superintendent of grounds and buildings to certify to them, and the contractor to make oath as to their correctness. The former governor had admitted under cross examination that hu did not know that $l.n!l.00(l had been paid by Snyder and Mathties to Contractor Sanderson without the approval of the board, or on January 10, i:tn5, the date of the adoption of a PHOENIX ACADEMY AND BUSINESS COLLEGE.

KINGSBURY TEMPE, ARIZ. resolution by tho board requiring the architect's certificate to bills, that $2,un,iMio bad been paid Sanderson in excess of Architect Huston's estimate of the costs and furnishings. Mr. Pennypacker said he had no reason for thinking that Huston did not do as full;- as he could the work lie was called upon to do. If iou are asking me for my judg ment, hu said, I think it was a great achievement. Asked how long his reliance upon the architect continued, his answer was: "It continues down to the present lime, until I am shown reason to the contrary." The commonwealth showed by the cross examination of James H. Stevenson, Sanderson's bookeeper, that bills for furniture for the senate house amounting to over $600,000 were made 0'.:t as so many foe in bulk, and were :aid for in the course of Sanderson's business, several 'months afterwards. Stevenson, when ordered to make out detailed bills, 'simply took the lump sum in feet "ap portioned" it among the articles, ; gleaning some information from the j blue prints and receiving the remain i di r from Sanderson. Stevenson had some ".feet" left, which he added to the rostrums in the senate house caucus rooms. Evidence was introduced by the de fense to show that In spite of the "ap proximation" system of billing San derson's furnishings, the state was the gainer to the extent of $31S,227 in San derson's bills for furniture, and that Sanderson could have collected $1,224, 1'92, instead of $b76.0C6 for the furni- turc.

BURTIS 15 East Washington St., Civilized by Coronado's Men 1 Navajo Indians have been making rugs and blankets for centuries. The history of the Navajo tribe is a history of the Navajo blanket. Three centuries ago, in the days of Coronado. the Navajo Indians were manufacturers of cloth. But they did not then know what wool cloth meant. They made their blankets from Ifrass. I once had a large piece of this Navajo grass cloth, recovered from the ancient cliff dwellings of the Indians. One of the curiosities of the Big Curio today is a piece of grass-wool cloth. This marked the transition from grass to wool. The warp is of grass and the woof wool. It is to the Spanish Catholic Fathers that the Navajo Indians owe their civilization, just tut this section of America owes so many other things to the Catholics. They taught the Navajos how to farm and raise sheep and make the wih-1 into garments and serviceable blankets. I will be glad to tell you much more about this noble tribe of Indians if you will only some and ask it. I will show you the most extensive line of their products in the southwest at the same time.
